Matinee Theater - Single Episodes





MATINEE THEATER



Matinee Theater represented a serious attempt by CBS to provide quality dramatic programming for its Sunday afternoon listeners. A continuation of the series Dangerously Yours, it was renamed Matinee Theater with a view towards presenting "a greater range of stories". That broader scope was able to accommodate such episodes as "Beautiful Dreamer" (the Stephen Foster story) and "The Love Story of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning".

Victor Jory and several different female stars paired to bring classics like "Wuthering Heights", "Jane Eyre", and "The Scarlet Pimpernel" to the audience, as well as a number of more contemporary works. The first of these thirty-minute broadcasts aired October 22, 1944 and the final one on April 8, 1945. The Vick Chemical Company sponsored throughout.

Subject: Great Shows But They "Hiccup"
Can you go back and fix the "hiccups" on the shows? It really makes it hard to listen to them. It is a cyclical thing. Every few seconds, the sound cuts out for a wee bit making it very annoying to listen to the show. I've encountered this in open reel tape where the tape doesn't go through the head just right on playback. It can also be caused by a warped phonograph record, if the shows were sourced from there.
